[RFC 2/3] arm64/hugetlb: Enable HUGETLB_PAGE_SIZE_VARIABLE

MAX_ORDER which invariably depends on FORCE_MAX_ZONEORDER can be a variable
for a given page size, depending on whether TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE is enabled
or not. In certain page size and THP combinations HUGETLB_PAGE_ORDER can be
greater than MAX_ORDER, making it unusable as pageblock_order.

This enables HUGETLB_PAGE_SIZE_VARIABLE making pageblock_order a variable
rather than the compile time constant HUGETLB_PAGE_ORDER which could break
MAX_ORDER rule for certain configurations.
